Discussion

  • When using ?name=... it says it retrieves resources with a matching name (or title). What kind of "matching"?
  • How exactly does ?duration=... work - does it support range or fuzzy matching for example?
  • If multiple filter arguments are given, how do they combine? Is it allowed to repeat a filter argument (e.g. ?artist=X&artist=Y) ?
  • AFAICT nowhere does it say what exactly all the ?inc options do. I can guess most of them, in a vague sort of way, but for example is ?inc=artist-rel artist releases or artist relationships (or something else)? If these have already been defined, then a pointer to that definition would be helpful.
  • Are there any plans on adding release lookup by EAN / UPC code? Would be a very nice feature for media libraries to get more information about audio CDs. --BrainDamaged
